SloWhey School of Cheese is a project founded on goals of education in and celebration of sustainable cheesemaking and a slower way of living.
SloWhey is a celebration of a slower way of living. A life of seasonal abundance, capturing a snap shot of time and place. In 2013 Caleigh completed a qualification in Artisan Cheese Making and brings a diverse range of knowledge to her classes. She has worked in various roles within the industry from judging at dairy competitions to travelling overseas to hone her skills as a Cheese Maker. Caleigh lives with her partner Luke and two children on a small property just outside of Willunga. When not dreaming of cheese, Caleigh helps run their small family winery and grows plenty of food for fermenting and preserving. She draws inspiration from the surrounding landscape comprising historic vineyards, almond and olive groves. Caleigh and her family embrace a life of abundance and community.
